Domestic Like Article 

4. The applicant has claimed that there is no significant difference in subject goods

produced by the Indian industry and imported from subject countries are comparable in 
terms of characteristics such as physical & chemical characteristics, manufacturing 
process & technology, functions & uses, product specifications, distribution & marketing 
and tariff classification of the goods. The two are technically and commercially 
substitutable. The consumers are using the two interchangeably. 

5. For the purpose of investigation, the subject goods produced by the applicant is being 
treated as like article to the subject goods imported from subject countries within the 

« meaning of the AD Rules for the purpose of this investigation. 


Domestic Industry & ‘Standing*

behalf of the domestic industry. The applicant domestic producers have provided injury 
and costing information. As per the evidence available on record, production of the 
applicant accounts for a major proportion of the domestic production and the same is 
more than 50% of the Indian production.

8 


THE GAZETTE OF INDIA : EXTRAORDINARY 


[FartI—Sec. 1] 


that they have not been able to get the sufficient information regarding market economy 
third country for determination of Normal value in case of China PR. Thus, the applicant 
has claimed the Normal value on the basis of constructed cost of production, including 
selling general and administration expenses and profits. The applicant has also submitted 
that Thailand may be treated as surrogate country for China PR. The Authority seeks 
comments on this issue as well. 

As regards other subject countries, the applicant has constructed the normal' values in 
respect of subject countries stating that they were not able to get any documentary 
evidence or reliable information with regard to domestic prices in the subject countries 
nor the same are available in the public domain. The Authority has prima-facie 
considered the normal value of subject goods in subject countries on the basis of 
constructed values as made available by the applicant for the purpose of this initiation. 


Export Price 

10. The applicant has determined export prices based on the data compiled by IBIS. 
The export prices have been adjusted for ocean freight, marine insurance, port handling, 
inland transportation, and bank commission etc to arrive at net export price at ex-factory 
level. 

PumpinR margin 

11. There is sufficient evidence that the Normal value of the subject goods in subject 
countries is significantly higher than the net Export price, prima-facie indicating that the 
subject goods are being dumped by the exporters from the subject countries. 

‘Injury’ and Causal Link 

12. The applicant has furnished evidence claiming injury as a result of alleged 
dumping. It has been claimed that the imports have increased in absolute terms and in 
relation to production & consumption in India; the imports are significantly suppressing 
the prices of the domestic industry. The applicant has claimed deterioration in 
performance of the domestic industry in terms of sales, production, utilization of 
capacity, market share, profit, return on capital employed and price suppression etc. 
There is sufficient evidence with regard to ‘injury’ being suffered by the applicant caused 
by dumped imports from subject countries to justify initiation of this investigation in 
terms of the AD Rules. 

Initiation of Anti Dumping Investigation 

13. In view of the foregoing paragraphs, the Designated Authority finds that sufficient 
evidence of dumping of subject goods from the subject countries, ‘injury’ to the domestic 
industry and causal link between the dumping and ‘injury’ exists to justify initiation of an
